DALLAS - Frisco Soccer & Entertainment Center (FSEC) President and General Manager Greg Elliott announced today that Chevrolet has become a Signature Partner of FSEC and a major marketing and promotional partner of the North Texas State Soccer Association (NTSSA).
"Being associated with an industry leader like Chevrolet is a major plus for our organization," said Elliott. "We are pleased to announce this promotional partnership and look forward to reaching our like audiences with Chevrolet."
The north end of the stadium will be named the Chevy Plaza where Chevrolet will display vehicles from their exciting product lineup. In addition Chevrolet will partner with FSEC in bringing an annual international soccer match to the stadium. As part of this overall partnership, Chevrolet will also receive other marketing and promotional opportunities such as ride n' drive weekend events at the facility, title sponsorship of a youth soccer tournament, branding throughout the stadium and soccer park, and various media elements.
"The Frisco Soccer and Entertainment Center is a unique opportunity for us to reach our markets in this community," said Ken Dillon, North Texas Chevrolet Dealers spokesperson. "Chevrolet and its dealers are thrilled to be a Signature Partner not only with the soccer center but are also pleased to have the ability to reach deep into the communities through NTSSA. This is a win for us all the way around."
Working closely with NTSSA, the two entities have jointly developed the North Texas Chevy Soccer Tour, which will travel to numerous North Texas soccer fields, as well as other community events, throughout the year. This unique initiative is designed to help promote the sport of soccer, drive traffic to all north Texas Chevrolet dealerships, develop more awareness for NTSSA and its members, and create special benefits for each community which will feature interactive soccer elements, games, music, prizes, Chevrolet vehicle displays and more.
"The North Texas Chevy Soccer Tour is a very special milestone in our longstanding relationship with Chevrolet and the North Texas Chevy Dealers," said NTSSA President John Sutter. "The Tour will afford both Chevy and NTSSA the opportunity to travel across the North Texas area reaching out to NTSSA members and local communities to actively promote all levels of soccer and build awareness of local Chevy dealers."
